Idaho Hires Two Companies to Build Insurance Website

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho’s insurance exchange voted to give two companies publicly funded contracts worth $40.8 million to build and operate a state enrollment system due to replace the federal software in place now. Your Health Idaho’s board Friday voted to give the work to GetInsured and Accenture, the two companies that also built California’s state insurance exchange. Idaho has used the federal government’s exchange for the past five months because it didn’t have enough time to build its own system before the Oct. 1, 2013 deadline. Now, Your Health Idaho chairman Stephen Weeg says GetInsured and Accenture will develop an exchange tailored to the state’s needs. GetInsured gets $37.4 million to build and run the exchange through 2018. Accenture gets $3.4 million to oversee the project. The money comes from federal grants.
